10 euro: Historic Ibero-American Coins
Series: Spain: Ibero-American Series
The obverse reproduces the reverse of an 8-reales coin that was struck in Seville under the Catholic Monarchs Isabella I and Ferdinand V of Castile. The mint mark, assayer's mark and face value were stamped on the obverse. So the symbols of the yoke and the arrows also appear on all the coins from 1 to 8 reales that were struck by any of the mints under these monarchs. The center of the reverse side features the arms of Spain. Shown surrounding this central motif, and in alphabetical order clockwise, are the national coats-of-arms of the other countries that are participating in this issue.
